Sing -- as originally performed by My Chemical Romance Written by: My Chemical Romance
As soon as I heard "Sing" it begged for me to cover it. Zakk Wylde says he writes guitar riffs on acoustic because if they sound heavy on an acoustic they'll sound thunderous electrified. The first thing I did with "Sing" was strum it out on my acoustic and it lifted like a mother ship! Immediate epic quality. Hats off to MCR for their amazing music. I raised the key a whole step so I could open up my voice, but otherwise it felt so naturally related to my own style of songwriting that the recording came together in a couple of hours.
Over Super Bowl weekend Anthony Chavez (friend & fellow yogi) and I went down to the dog park in Huntington Beach to catch some sunset footage. The Dog Park is a large area of the beach where people can let their K9s run and poop freely so consequently it's beautiful and unpopulated. Drummer Brian McRae returns to his role as the faceless "mystery hat man" exposing his identity only briefly at the end.
